Bonded fillings often require a single appointment
Making it a convenient option for you. Your direct billing dentist in Barrie will start the process by abrading and etching the surface of the affected tooth by applying a conditioning liquid. Once your tooth has been adequately prepared, your dentist available evenings will mould and shape the tooth-coloured resin material to fit the shape of the affected tooth. An ultraviolet light is then used to harden the material, enabling it to securely bond to your tooth. Once hardened, your direct billing dentist in Barrie will trim and polish the material to match the natural look of your tooth. Contact us today to learn more about bonded fillings.
